Lawmakers have until June 9 to craft and pass a concealed carry law, by order of a federal appeals court.
Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon says she is weighing her options when it comes to seeking another public office.
The group will be made up of freshmen state senators and representatives. They will meet with gun owners, hunters, law enforcement and families of gun violence victims.

“I think what we need to look at is from the point of view of ‘how do we keep ourselves safe,’ and that’s a different answer, depending on where you are in the state.”
The donated phones, which Sheila Simon characterized as “turning everyone’s junk drawer into good news,” will be erased and refurbished.

Simon cites a Pew Research Center report that found students amassed an average of $26,000 in student loans in 2010.
The Illinois delegation bubbled with excitement four years ago. Now, says Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, the thrill is gone.
